Here’s New Dragon Age 4 Concept Art to Take the Sting Out of Its EA Play Absence

Although BioWare has confirmed that Dragon Age 4 won’t be part of EA Play Live 2021, a new piece of concept art was unveiled that will hopefully make the wait for more info a bit easier to bear.

Dragon Age 4 executive producer Christian Dailey shared the image on Twitter, and it gives us a brand new look at the Antivan Crows and may hint at them having an important role to play in the game’s story.

“Hi Friends – sorry for no EA Play news this year but please know that the team is heads down with a lot of momentum and making great progress,” Daley wrote. “We are excited to share more when the time is right. Please stay safe and have a great weekend! @SerGoldman @dragonage

The Antivan Crows are an elite group of thieves, spies, and assassins and were first introduced in Dragon Age: Origins. Zevran Arainai, who is a potential companion in Origins, was once part of this organization.

This concept art joins others revealed by Dailey that gave a look at a mage in Minrathous, a helmeted archer character, and a possible tease of the return of the Grey Wardens.

The EA Play Live 2021 showcase, which also won’t feature any news on the next Mass Effect, will take place on July 22. Prior to the show, there will be four events in the EA Play Live Spotlight Series that will feature such games as Battlefield 2042, Apex Legends, and more.
